MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives, working in the Sefton area, are appealing for information following a robbery at an off licence, in Lydiate, Merseyside, on Friday, 24 September 2016.

They escaped with the cash and were seen to get into a red Honda Civic that had been parked on Barnes Drive. The car was driven off at speed towards Ormskirk Road.

The offender, believed to be in possession of a gun, was wearing a sky blue polo shirt, a baseball cap and a scarf over his face.

The 2nd male, who is believed to have been in possession of a knife, was wearing a black anorak with the hood closed up over his face and black gloves.

Detective Inspector Mike Dalton, said:- "This was a very frightening incident for the staff who were working in the store at the time. Thankfully they weren't injured during the incident, but they were extremely distressed. I would like to reassure people who live locally that we are doing everything we can to arrest those responsible. I would appeal to anyone who saw anything which may help our inquiries, or who recognises the descriptions of the offenders, to get in contact with us as soon as possible."
